    Mind you, didn't the Topper merge with the Dandy, hence the fact that Beryl was first in The Topper? I am certain that the Nutty was incorporated into the Dandy, as I found some old comics circa 1986 with The Dandy and Nutty on the front cover,
    You're right. Apparently the Topper did merge with the Dandy in 1993 and Beryl the Peril featured in that comic too. I didn't realise this. I'm a bit older than you and just remember the character from the Topper

    I assume that you are already in your 40s (which I will be heading to myself as soon as next week!)

    A neighbour used to work for WHSmith's distribution department and used to give my family a lot of comics and things that they couldn't sell after they were taken off the shelves and replaced by new editions, and the Dandy, Beano and others were some of them - I believe that he was also responsible for donating old magazines to local doctors' and dentists' waiting rooms as well!

    The Topper comic was not to be confused with the free newspaper (dominated by advertising) also called The Topper which we got through local letterboxes back in the mid 1990s.
    I am now in my 40s (just in case anyone asks).

    Some girls in my class had Garfield pencil cases and all that.
